Denver, CO (PRWEB) September 24, 2012
A Colorado District Court has overwhelmingly ruled in favor of attorneys Drew Moore, Lawrence Williamson, Jr., and their legal support services provider, Morgan Drexen (http://www.morgandrexen.com).
A complaint was issued by the State of Colorado's Attorney General's office, arguing Morgan Drexen was subject to the state's Uniform Debt-Management Services Act in its capacity as a legal support company.
In each of the issues filed in case 11CV7027, the District Court judge ruled in favor of Morgan Drexen.
The court stated the complaint issued by the Colorado Attorney General’s office “…misses the critical distinction that Morgan Drexen and other non-lawyer assistants are not mere ‘third parties,’ but rather are extensions of the attorneys and the services the attorneys offer.”
Furthermore, portions of the Colorado statute were deemed unconstitutional, with the judge ruling the AG's argument that the area of debt law required the licensure under the Colorado Debt Management Services Act (DMSA), C.R.S 12-14.5-204-209 et seq, was “manifestly inconsistent with Colorado Case law.”
"While this was an overwhelming win for Morgan Drexen, as always, we aim to keep an open dialogue with the Colorado AG's office and work with them in the future," said Morgan Drexen CEO Walter Ledda.
The case centered around which entity was in charge. It was proven Morgan Drexen was the support company, and that the company works at the direction of the attorneys it supports.
Morgan Drexen provides back-office and paralegal support services for attorneys across the country, supporting more than one hundred attorneys across America.
